Can Basalt Be Polished


Basalt USES 1: building materials
Basalt has excellent compression and folding performance, and basalt wear resistance is good, low water absorption rate, is a very good building decoration materials, is widely used for indoor and outdoor decoration, generally used as outdoor stone, because its natural color, can be well coordinated with the surrounding landscape, is the best choice of floor stone.However, there are certain defects, because its unique properties determine that basalt in the market without aniseed, so large basalt is precious.
 
 
Basalt use two: road materials
Road of the commonly used material is sand soil, but the road we here is no ordinary country road is not a highway asphalt, it tracks, we've all seen the train tracks the roommate groundmass often called stone pillow, this is to use basalt laid, and according to the expert's precise study basalt basalt is repair in highway, railway, airport runway used stone of the best materials, with strong pressure resistance, crushing value, strong corrosion resistance, low asphalt adhesion, etc.
 
Basalt has many advantages, such as wear resistance, less water consumption, poor electrical conductivity, strong compressive resistance, low crushing value, strong corrosion resistance, asphalt adhesion, etc., which makes it widely used, and recognized by countries around the world, is the best foundation stone for the development of railway transport and road transport.
 
Three USES of basalt: cementing materials
 
Cementing material is a material that can change from slurry to solid stone, and can cement other materials to make composite solid with certain mechanical strength.
 
The development of cementitious materials actually existed a long time ago, when the earliest cementitious materials, clay, were used to coat and build simple buildings.Then the emergence of cement and other building materials has a lot to do with gelled material, plastic material is actually in basalt as the basic raw material, since the role of the basalt is very big, but the scope of its existence is rarely so there are a lot of new materials to replace the basalt material, but the synthetic materials cannot replace basalt bring visual effect.
